Customer Question
Hi, I have a Panasonic...
Hi, I have a Panasonic SA-PT460 DVD/ home cinema system. The dvd tray keeps on opening and will only stay in the open position. When it closes, it gets to the end of its travel and then there is the grating of the gears, as if it is trying to travel further/ not reached the micro switch( if there is 1). After a short pause, it opens, and stays open until I press the close button and then the process repeats itself.

Thanks for your question! This is not a request for more information and I apologize if this message caused you any confusion.

I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet. Most questions are responded to within the hour, but this can depend on different factors, including the difficulty of your question, how many questions are being posted by customers, whether or not this type of question can be answered in an online forum and how many Experts are on the site at the time your question posts.

I will go ahead and try to find an Expert to assist you with your question and appreciate your patience. You will receive an email notification when an Expert replies to you, just as you did here. Unfortunately, I can not guarantee a time-frame for which yours will be answered and I apologize a head of time if the wait is longer than expected.

Please do not reply to this message unless you do not need further help. If that is the case, please let me know and I can assist you with that.

Relist: Answer quality.
I may just be asking the wrong type of question, where the only answer is to take it to a service engineer. Unfortunately, I am not going to pay someone to tell me to take it to a service engineer. I am looking for model specific information that may allow me to repair/ reset the unit myself. If this is not possible, I will then pay to have it repaired. Thank you.
